I BOUGHT A Legit FIRETRUCK From The Fire Department

When the stimulus check hits... okay I'm kidding, but I'm not kidding about buying a firetruck! I bought a 1977 Mack CF-600 from the Arcadia, KS fire department for $3,000. They posted it for sale on FB and I said I'd bring cash, no questions asked, and be there Monday morning to get it. Now they've got their new Grumman fire engine and I've got this beautiful old truck. We're driving it back home and then I have literally no idea what I'm going to do with it.
For every 100,000 likes this video gets I'll send another $1,000 to the Arcadia Fire Department.

@Erik Roberts I've read Youubers typically make $8/10,000 view. Maybe the top tier youtubers make more. However, JR is definitely chipping in some his own money for every 100K views to help out the local fire dept.

I commented on the other video, but I grew up in Arcadia, KS!!! Those trains were so loud and annoying lmao! That 4 mile drive to hwy 69 is very hilly but nice. I actually live in Iowa now but I’ve been inside that truck and on top for parades. I’m glad that someone will take care and appreciate this truck!

@Monte Stu We paid $8k, it's a new to us truck, 1992 Grumman Firecat with 16k miles, and around 1k engine hours. So with the $3k from the sale of Big Red, yes $5k would cover the remaining balance of what we spent.

I think you were hitting the mechanical siren brake at the end cause I can hear the brake solenoid clinking, the mechanical siren might have a pedal switch on the ground that you have to use, it could be on the passenger side too.

Mack is the only truck manufacturer that had a fire truck division. That's when Mack was Mack! You couldn't kill them. A friend of mine has an oil truck converted from a fire truck... 1979 R 600. 237 hp Mack with a 5 speed Mack transmission. It will pull a house down.

Did you figure out the proper way to turn it off and on? (I’m talking about starting the engine and turning it off. When turning it off, you turn off the master switch. Then use the choke, and last but not least, turn both batteries off or you’re gonna be doing lots of jump-starts. The black handle that the driver can reach with his right hand to his right (look down to the right, you’ll see it) must be turned to OFF for both batteries. The rig has at least two batteries and that black knob selects them. Always run and start with it turned to BOTH. Don’t just use 1 battery. It needs two, plus it keeps both charged as you’re driving around. If you turn in the batteries to BOTH, don’t worry about the “Zzzxz” buzzer you hear. That is perfectly normal. It means start the engine by pushing the black starter button. Double-check with a pro, but I don’t recall ever using the fuel mixture to cut the engine. Maybe I did and just forgot. The first rig I learned to drive was a 1976 Seagraves Class A engine with a 1,500 GPM Waterous brand pump. The water tank held 500 gallons. If that is a Class A engine, I’m guessing the specs are similar. Nice find!!! I wish I could own a fire truck in the great condition you found it. Have fun!

Mack CF fire trucks are work horses. I got my start in 2006 volunteering and we had a 1991 and 1981 Mack CF (the 91 was a Mack/Grumman, and the 81 was a straight up Mack). Pressed into service there is no doubt either could perform today in 2021. The one thing I do notice is that it is a fully enclosed cab. That was likely (truly almost guarnteed) a later addition. The 81 we ran was an open cab, and even in 06 and 07 we were running her as our second due. I will say this too, if it wasn't for the experimental breaks on the 91 Mack/Grumman, she would likely be in service to this day. Yet we pushed her to second due in 07, and the breaks we couldn't get parts outside of custom machined parts, sadly money said to retire her even though she had years left to serve. Don't get me wrong, if I were to straight up purchase a new engine in 2021, yeah it would be a ton safer, but the fact remains that nothing made today can compare to what was made when Mack was in full swing in the fire apparatus business. Now we are running an 2007 Pierce and a 2001 Pierce (a used piece purchased to replace the 1991 Mack/Grumman when she was forcefully retired), and soon to be 2021 Pierce/2007 Pierce, yet I truly would want to rely on the '81/'91 Macks if push came to shove.
